Course Summary

12 Students

16 - 18 year olds




We are proud to be affiliated with the fantastic France Langue language school based in Biarritz. This Leaving Cert preparation trip for students about to begin sixth year includes twenty-six French lessons per week. These are taught by the dynamic, dedicated and fully qualified staff at this superb school. Tutors use stimulating and interactive methods during these lessons to ensure that students develop a passion for French while improving their fluency.

Six of these weekly classes take place in smaller groups. These focus specifically on the Leaving Certificate syllabus and are aimed at fully preparing you to confidently sit the oral and written exams.

In these additional lessons, tutors will have greater opportunity to focus on your individual needs and progress in a more personalised setting.

During lessons, teachers utilise a range of interactive multimedia class resources which assist in improving your French comprehension, expression and overall conversation skills. All class materials are provided so there’s no need for students to bring books with them.

Between the comprehensive lessons and amazing activities and excursions involved in this trip, you’ll have plenty to discuss with your French Oral examiner!

The France Langue school is located in a traditional Basque style building just a ten-minute walk from the local beaches. On-site, you’ll find a private swimming pool, a beautiful terrace garden and a welcoming team of dedicated staff always on hand to assist and support you.

If the dates of this trip do not suit, we also provide Leaving Certificate Prep Courses which students can begin any Monday of the year.

At Stein Study we understand that safe and comfortable accommodation is integral in ensuring students have a positive experience while studying abroad. The superb staff at France Langue ensure that the host family you stay with are welcoming and able to meet each student’s needs.

In your accommodation you can share a room with friends or we can place you with another student if you are travelling alone. For a surcharge students can also request a single room with a host family.

Full board is included in your homestay accommodation which is located a short distance form the language school.

Curfew for all students is 11pm from Sunday to Thursday and 1am on Friday and Saturdays.

This type of accommodation is a fantastic opportunity for students to fully immerse themselves in the French language and lifestyle as they get the opportunity to put practice what they’ve learnt in class. They’ll do this during everyday conversations with their native-speaking host family in a laid-back and friendly environment.

School Introduction Video

You’ll need to arrange your own flights. But we will provide you with the details needed regarding the airline you’ll travel with, the flight number and flight times of your outgoing and return journeys to ensure you travel with your Group Leaders and fellow students.

You’ll fly out on the 8th of April or the 5th of June 2017

While all meals are provided, you’ll need money for socialising and shopping during your time away.

Having a foundation of conversational French is beneficial to students going on any of our language courses but even less advanced students will see their fluency flourish in a short space of time during this immersive experience.

Transfer between the airport and your host family’s home is provided on arrival and departure.

Students can opt to stay for two or three weeks. If you book a two week trip but want to extend your stay while you’re there, that’s no problem.

Students can opt to share a room with a friend or can be placed with another student if they have travelled alone. Staying with a student who you didn’t know before your trip is a great way to widen your circle of friends while getting the chance to practice your language skills with new people.

Students will stay with a welcoming host family who live a short distance from the France Langue language school in Biarritz. Each host family is previously vetted by the school staff.
